You've upgraded to the Facebook Timeline, but now comes the hardest step of all, beyond acceptance of yet another layout change: selecting the perfect cover photo. Choosing one slightly quirky, but fun, yet flattering square profile picture was enough, but compound that with the new creatively charged large rectangle to small square picture combination, and you get a recipe for Facebook-induced insomnia. A new free iOS app, the Facebook Cover Designer, promises to give your Timeline image duo a professional treatment.
Select pictures from Facebook itself, Flickr, Instagram, Picasa, or Photobucket to edit with the app, then add filters like condensation, solar effects, and sparkle to the picture. A $1 upgrade to the Facebook Cover Designer pro app allows you to create two seamless Timeline photos from one image, as shown here in the app's demo.
